Each time a page on your website does not load, an error message will be shown to the site visitor. Since there are different errors, there are different pages that'll display, but what's typical for all of them is that they are generic and probably shall have absolutely nothing that is similar to the layout of your Internet site, which may be aggravating for any site visitor. This is the primary reason why website hosting companies have introduced a feature known as Custom Error Pages. For a number of different errors, website visitors shall see your unique content, which could be informative or humorous, based on your choice, and that will match the overall design of your Internet site, so the pages shall not seem like they aren't part of your Internet site at all. You may use this option for a variety of errors - 400 (Bad request), 401 (Unauthorized), 403 (Forbidden) and 404 (File not Found).

The function is supported by all shared hosting package which we offer, so when you log in to your Hepsia CP and visit the Hosted Domains section, you can easily click on the Edit button for a domain/subdomain and in the pop-up that will be displayed, you may choose the kind of error page that should show up - a default one from our system, a standard Apache web server page or a personalized one. For the latter option, you have to specify the URL to the page, so when you use personalized pages, you need to upload the files inside your Internet hosting account first.
